Just to make sure I have the terminology straight: Conlang: constructed language -- any artificial language. Auxlang: auxiliary language -- an artificial language intended as a linguistically neutral ground for international communication. Artlang: art language -- an artificial language built for its own sake, often as a "mental exercise" to explore a linguistic possibility. Ficlang: fictional language -- an artificial language built to fit into a fictional world. Natlang: natural language -- a real-world language that developed naturally. Lanalang: Clark Kent's high school sweetheart. Am I right? --- Bob's Original Hero Stuff Page! [Circle of HEROS member] Music from Bob's Computer! (CD now available!) Want more hits to your web page?
